These confections are not only insanely delicious but are also a snap to make. Some of these recipes don’t even require baking at all!

1. Easter Egg Cheesecake 

Is there anything more Easter-worthy than a smooth and creamy cheesecake in an egg?

Not only is this dessert oozing with charm, but it’s also delicious as well.

It’s a chocolate Easter egg half with a crumbled biscuit crust, velvety cheesecake filling, and it has colorful melted chocolate drizzled on top.

It’s so good, I died, went to cheesecake heaven, and came back again.

2. Copycat Creme Eggs 

Why buy Cadbury Creme Eggs when you can make them yourself?

These copycat eggs may not be as smooth on the outside as the original, but they taste just as amazing, and are more affordable, too!

All you’ll need are pantry staples that are most likely already on hand – corn syrup, butter, sugar, chocolate melts, and food coloring.

Make this for Easter, and your kids will think you’re the coolest mom or dad on earth.

More importantly, they taste amazing. You really can’t go wrong with crushed Oreos and cream cheese. I’d gladly eat that combo with a spoon!

Rolled in balls and dipped in melted chocolate, they transform into an even more sensational sweet. 

4. Peeps Krispie Treats 

Peeps are one of the most common candies on Easter. You’ll probably have a ton of them lying around, so why not use them to make the perfect dessert?

Peeps Krispie treats are sweet, crisp, crunchy, and just beautiful to look at. They’re so easy to make, to boot!

All you’ll need are Rice Krispies and different-colored Peeps.

5. Easter Egg Rocky Road 

From the name alone, you can tell how delicious this dessert is.

These bars are fudgy, chocolatey, and full of fun textures from mini-Easter candy eggs, marshmallows, and roasted peanuts! 

Best of all, there’s no baking required. You literally just combine the ingredients and let the mixture set. 

6. Easter Trifle 

This Easter trifle could not be any cuter. It’s the ultimate head-turner! 

The layers are very simple – multi-colored cakes, pudding, whipped topping, colorful candies, and Bunny Peeps.

When assembled, you’ll get the most adorable layer cake that’s almost too beautiful to eat.

It’s not just about the looks, though! With complementing flavors and contrasting textures, it’s truly a show-stopping dessert.

7. Peeps Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Two ingredients are all you’ll need to make a dangerously addictive Easter treat.

Stuff your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough batter with a piece or two of Peeps and bake as instructed.

It’s so easy, yet the resulting cookies are so good. They’re soft and chewy with an ooey-gooey surprise center!

8. Easter Bread 

This Italian bread is made of a wreath-shaped brioche with a colored Easter egg in the middle.

Speckled with pastel-colored sprinkles, this bread is the ultimate festive Easter treat!

Unlike most recipes on this list, this one takes a bit of work. But it’s such a thing of beauty, you’ll want to try it, anyway. It’s worth the effort for sure!

9. Robin Eggs No-Bake Cheesecake

This no-bake cheesecake isn’t only delicious, but looks ridiculously adorable, too. 

There’s nothing like a creamy and velvety cheesecake for dessert.

But with this recipe, you’ll dress up the classic cheesecake to make it Easter-ready. All you’ll need are sweet Robin Eggs.

The cheesecake recipe is basically the same as any, except you fold in Robin Eggs to the cheesecake filling.

Decorate with more Robin Eggs on top and voila, dessert is ready. 

10. Peeps Popcorn Balls 

This dessert is a unique approach to transforming leftover Peeps into a pretty and tasty Easter treat.

Peeps popcorn balls are plain popcorn coated with melted Peeps and formed into bite-sized balls. These guys are wonderfully sweet, pink, and fantastic!

Pro-tip: if you find these munchies to be super sweet, just sprinkle some salt over them to balance out the flavor.

Banana Pudding With Vanilla Wafers

11. Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding 

This next dessert is a southern staple that’s perfect not just for Easter, but any time of the year as well.

With this dessert, you’ll get layers of bananas, custard, Nilla Wafers, and a golden meringue topping.

Each layer is already good on its own, so just imagine what they’d be like together!

It may seem like a lot, all you really need to worry about is the custard, and it’s very easy to make.

Once that’s done, all that’s left is to layer the cake, and bake!

12. Bunny Sugar Cookies

19. Peeps Easter Bark 

This chocolate bark is gorgeous, scrumptious, and insanely easy to make.

To say that this dessert is festive is an understatement. 

It’s a simple chocolate bark recipe, but you’ll use blue, yellow, pink, and purple candy melts to make the most colorful treat!   

20. Pastel Butter Cookies 

These almond shortbread cookies are ridiculously soft and buttery. Oh, and they have such beautiful pastel colors, to boot! 

The key to those gorgeous colors? Nope, not food coloring! There’s nothing artificial about these cookies at all.

Different-colored dried fruits to add that lovely pastel hue.

All you’ll need is to blend powdered sugar with ground freeze-dried mangoes, blueberries, and mangoes. Smart, huh?

21. Lemon Chick Cookies 

These lemon chick cookies are so pretty and tasty, you won’t believe they only require three ingredients.
